Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta I _ TMt WediMMlay, Ftbiuoty 10, 1171 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was shocked last week when I learned that our son and his friends stayed all a a girls housTHer folks were out of town and the boys indutel) totd their parents they were ijiyigg We now know that several the night in the house also. We learned the truth when the father boys became suspicious and went to the girl's house early the next g. Tte front door was open so we walked in and woke Concert cellist though blind, paralysed thp v Our' son is 17 no longer a child. He will be going away to school next fall. If he behaves this way now, how will he behave when he is on his own? What should we do? We have no proof that anything un- moral went on, but it's unrealistic to assume -these kids did nothing more than talk all night. Can you advise us? Out- foxed at 46-53. DEAR OUTFOXED: Before you assume anything, have a chat with your son and get the straight story-all of it The fact that the boy spent the night at a girl's house and lied about it is now a matter of record. This should not go un- punished A separate issue is what did he do there? If he admits he was intimate with a girl, -accept the fact that he is now experimenting with sex and will undoubtedly continue to do so. It is of the utmost importance that the boy understands the responsibilities .that .go along .with .sex experimentation. Make sure he is informed on methods of preventing V.D. and pregnancy Boys who do not have adequate information, or worse yet, feel it's up to the girl to "taka care of herself" sometimes end up infected or prematurely married.. It is useless to condemn and sermonize. A 17-year-old boy who does not consider jre-miritM sex immoral will tune you out completely. DEAR ANN: My fiance is 45, three times divorced and living with his mother. If I'm lucky I see him once or twice a week. The- other nights be says he is tired and -going to bed. The next day I 'find out he was in a bar all night getting crocked. He says he loves me and I believe him. I'm sure he never looks at another woman. He is successful in his work and wonderful company, when I can get him. But so many things don't add up. Please help me understand. What's with him anyhow? Confused DEAR CONFUSED: Never mind what's with HIM. What's with you? Why are you wasting your time on a three-time loser who lives with1 his mother yet? Why are you hung up on a clown who would rather get bent out of shape in a bar than spend an evening with you? When you come up with an answer to these questions, you'll know it's time to say good-by.

Frances Crane was 17 when she was told multiple sclero- sis would slowly cripple and finally kill her.

Frances B u r n i g h t met Charles Crane when both were young music students at Whittier College and they were married in 1952.

Before the classes be- gan she was bedridden. Later, she taught at Red- lands University and her husband at local elementary schools. She painted and even gave cello concerts in a wheelchair. Her teaching continued un- til two years ago, though she was blind part of that time. "I think I became a better teacher after I tost my she said. "One learns to hear. "When my sight was taken from me I learned to sculpt. A blind person can enjoy a piece of sculpture. One can feel the lines, rhythm, flow and texture 10 times more than a sighted person, so we don't feel shut out. We feel rich." In the disease, hard, grey patches called scleroses form on the nerve sheets of the brain and spine, progres- s i v e 1 y incapacitating the nerves. Activity speeds up ami i deterioration. A neuro- surgeon said the disease is Imost always fatal, al- though it may linger for some time, with sufferers undergoing temporary remis- sions. The Cranes adopted a aughter, Bonnie, now grown nd married, and have three hildren of. their own. When their eldest child, Leonard, now 18, reached Cub Scout age Mrs. Grant became his en mother. Being in a ivheelchair helped her to see eve tr eye with the kids, she joked. The Cranes' second child Ann, was born 15 years ago. The third, Allyce, came only ive years ago, after Mrs. Crane had been paralyzed or eight years. CHILDREN HELPFUL "Sometimes I experience a ew pangs, thinking about my children having to grow up in a hurry, but maybe it's been good for said Mrs. Crane. "When they were 5 and 6K years old they saved my life by their jrornpt action They can jive shots, care for the house and prepare meals as effi- ciently as an adult. Now that even the use of my hands has been taken Erom me, something else has been given to me I can listen.
